EASY & QUICK | Got and hour? Why not make yourself (or someone you love) an arresting hand-knit cowl with gargantuan yarn from Loopy Mango. Clueless when it comes to knitting? No worries. Loopy Mango’s merino wool kits for infinity and super long scarves come complete with monster-loop yarn, giant birch wood knitting needles and instructions so explicit rank beginners will be churning out neck-wraps in no time.
Loopy Mango is a lifestyle boutique in Manhattan that features, along with other fashion items, giant yarn and knitting tools. Their knitting kits and classes have a cult following, and celebrity knitters, such as Ewan McGregor, have been spied dropping in for a big yarn fix.
Loopy Mango’s scarves and throws are knit on size 50 circular needles because you’ll knit faster with them, and make fewer mistakes, report shop owners Waejong and Anna. “The yarn and tools are so giant you will see exactly what you are doing and will understand better how knitting stitches work.” Should you need visual instruction, Loopy Mango has excellent tutorial videos on their website. —Annabel Lee
